  • How does it happen? The hole fill up then it drains then fills again sometimes it overflows and makes a giant spout.  more »
  • Winter waves at this place were rough. Even at low tide keep your head on a swivel, sneaker waves will soak you. But if you can get close enough it’s well worth a soaking. But then your wet and cold.....  more »

  • This was fairly easy to get to via a parking lot across the highway to a path with stairs down to the beach. This was one of the most unusual natural sites I've seen on the coast. The natural well fills and drains with the tide and was exciting and kind of scary to watch. 😃
  • Amazing tide pools; full of sea stars and tadpoles. Thor's well was raging and waves came crashing up really high. Got some really beautiful shots and videos! Definitely worth the stop and walking down the trail to see this. Must see for children.
  • Awesome! Definitely explore around the area. Go at low tide for some cool tide pools. Thor's crashing storms are very appropriately referenced by the name after hearing the thundering waves crashing up along the rocks in person. Parking available off the roadway.
  • To see it properly you want to see it just before or near the end of high tide otherwise there is no water action/drainage as featured in photos. 1 mile RT path takes you close to rocks. Many people venture right out to the well but that is for low tide and the sure footed.
  • Very cool. We timed our visit to the spouting horn & thors well right at high tide - it’s a show to see. And even just walking around the tide pools & seeing the edges of rock sides for starfish was awesome!
